Frank Ocean – Higgs

Saturdays involved making our entrances into life outside

We've been in this room too long

Recreation is keeping us self-contained and aware

Of each other's forms

Still and in full strides just the same

Keeping us warm

Walking in straight lines

Talking to sleep at night

Coddled and pacified

By versions of mothers

It's all new to me

It's all new to me

Having you around

It's all new to me

It's all new to me

Having you around the Higgs

What if we decide to live by choice?

All this time I knew

That average was something to fall back on after genius ends

I watch video; only difference is, it's flattened and remiss

Sparks of lightning storm behind wet faces

Slipped my pants back on and rewind it backward more

The tape stopped before I was back alone

I'll be back before

The street lights on, before the daylight's gone

I was spoiled by lavish thoughts

They don't compare, no, not at all

And had this been the past I might not know

What to do with all

Of what you've showed

What you give, my words can't hold

And if acts of God breaks us apart

Least we did ours

Turn back, turn back

Turn back, turn

Back, turn back, turn

If you've never been in love
